Build a tractor that is capable of traveling at 40mph, able to go down any trail you point it at (mud rocks logs ect..) and be able to pull a 4000 pound suv.

War Machine, both mk1 and 2 can do that already :)BUT, challenge accepted. Deadline?

**Edit - Mk1 can't anymore... but only because I broke it... yet... I have enough parts to resurrect!

I am positive my tractor handles #1 and #2 just fine as my tractor does a GPS certified 45mph and, well, you've seen the Haspin videos.... I'm almost certain I could pull a 4000 lb SUV on a flat (or close) in first gear, but since I haven't tried it yet, I'll say that remains to be proven.

Vids of Stretch's tractor completing the challenge:

Pulling a 5000 LB camper (I think we can agree this satisfies the 3rd challenge)

Stretch - edit this post to add video of a speed run when you can.

Interesting I can do the second thing. And have used it to move my plow truck with plow gear on when the battery was dead. but my pully swap is no where near 40mph.

OK, here's what I'll do. I will pull my 79 Dodge D100. Curb weight unloaded is 4900, and this has a toolbox (cross-bed) and a few hundred pounds of scrap in the back. Trails will consist of a run "below the lake" as we locals call it, a 1-2 mile run across everything from mud/water to mild rock climbing in 1 trail. Speed test I'll throw in there somewhere, probably as I run away from the county constabulary for taking the tractor on the highway lol
